Union Brau raises beer prices from December. The drink will be about three percent more expensive as of December. "Our stated objective is to be able to offer consumers the best Austrian quality at fair prices with our food and feed partners. Together, we want to sustainably promote the culture of Austrian beer and the variety of local beers in the future." emphasizes Brau Union CEO Magne Setnes. However, inflation, rising personnel and energy costs and a weaker harvest due to drought and heatwave, however, have led to rising costs.
